Bloom of a Chive Plant
These chives have been coming back every year in my garden.
I planted them over 26 years ago, and they have bloomed and thrived each year.
My kids named them "onion grass" and they used to love to grab a piece whenever they walked by them.
And they still do now that they are grown.
My daughter introduced her husband to onion grass just this past spring as he had never tasted it before.
I use them dried in many things that I cook - they have such a delicate flavor and add just the right amount onion taste in some dishes.
I just recently read that it has insect repelling properties, so planting them in a vegetable garden would be beneficial.
And their blooms are so pretty to look at too.
